For one, its human powered. There is no automated “sign-up”. You write a response to their 10 questions about your blog. Then they post your responses on their blog for people to vote on. If enough people vote for you they write something about your blog. Either way you get exposure that is more than a truncated blurb or an one line text link. Note: responses do seem to get read by a human which means it won’t appear instantly but it won’t take centuries either.
I decided to answer their 10 questions and found the experience quite illuminating. had the kind realisations you get when encountering your own thinking through the process of writing. I admit my answers might make me sound like a goodie goodie 😉 but are embarrassingly true as to what I feel about bloging. Before you think so, this post is NOT a cynical campaign to get votes for my blog 😈
Most minor blogger like humble self rarely get an opportunity for such exposure within a post of someone else’s blog. So if you are going to make use of this opportunity don’t please abuse it. I think that if more Sri Lankan bloggers respond to those questions it will pull some non-Sri Lankan attention to the Sri Lankan blogosphere.
I guess that might workout indirectly for those with Ad-Sense ads. However Blogs We Luv doesn’t make any annoying proclamations about ramping up your hit count. The traffic you get will be in the quality of what you write. If you measure your time commitment to answering the 10 questions by how many extra clicks you’ll get on your ads, this might not be for you.
Yes, having to answer the 10 questions is an entry hurdle. But its worth the jump if you love your blog and the process of blogging.
A tip: If you do send them answers to the 10 questions: It might be a good idea to post a comment on their blog letting them know that you submitted your answers.
